Centre for Religious Education and Catechesis

Action Research Project Focus Group photo

The Centre for Religious Education and Catechesis cultivates a multidisciplinary approach to applied research and reflective practice in religious education and catechesis that best responds to current needs. Grounded in the Roman Catholic tradition, and embracing all Christian traditions, the Centre seeks to partner with the faith-based agencies working in a variety of ways for faith development and catechesis across Canada.

The Centre is able to offer excellent formal and informal education in faith to our constituents, who are situated in various parts of the country. In order to sustain and extend these services in the future, the ongoing development of the Centre for Religious Education and Catechesis is imperative. Assistance from professors and staff of the Faculty of Human Sciences, Theology, and other University faculties and services ensures rich and creative academic research and educational practice.
